MLTI Castine 08 Digital Cameras in the Classroom

  1. 1. Digital Cameras In the Classroom MLTI Summer Tech Institute, Castine July 23-25, 2008
  2. 2. To See is to Understand • The old adage that a picture is worth a thousand words may be true. However, an image will stick in the mind of a student more firmly than any 1000 words!

  4. 4. Steps in a Project Cell Size Lab
  5. 5. To “know” or to “see” • Students think they are doing ok until they see themselves performing. • Video reviews of performance based learning can be invaluable formative assessments.
